First of all it has been tough coming up with blog ideas over the holidays. Mostly for reasons enclosed in this blog here Sometimes You Just Need A Quiet Place to Think. There’s a lot going on over the holidays! Onto the article today:
Eventually ideas start to run dry when coming up with blogging topics. Whether you blog every day or once over longer periods of time, eventually the well of ideas starts to dwindle. For me lately it has just been a matter of getting to a quiet place so I can hear my own thoughts (Psst, click the link above). What do you do when the well runs dry? Do what I do! Pick a blogging when starting out on a topic or subject that brings new content and adventures every day. An example of this for me is my day to day dealings with the publishing business. Every day I am trying to push the business just a little further. Naturally doing that creates new adventures or dealings that I have never experienced before. There is literally something new I learn every single day that I am excited to talk about! Some days I am talking with my artists about a new cover on a book. The next day I’ll be talking with my writers about a interest plot twist. Something fun for my readers out there is that I might be constructing a brand mascot. That will certainly bring some new content to the table. In my head I have been assembling a creepy puppet mouth and eyes from parts I have at the office (we publish horror and suspense books over here at ZHanny Publishing you see). You see what I mean? The content never ends when there is always something new or interesting going on.
So now the question goes back over to you. What do you have in your life that is consistently bringing in new changes or content? Maybe you have children that like to surprise you every chance they get. I work in the medical field for my full time job, that certainly throws experience curve balls every day. Another idea could be your business like me! Do you see the similarities between all these things? They all bring something new to the table every time you dapple in them. What is that topic for you?
